Violent Biopics

Carlos the Miniseries - based on "historical and journalistic research" this miniseries explores the career of Carlos the Jackal. Mixing re-enactments of real events with news footage, this movie's a mix of 'Munich' (with an obviously different set of characters to focus on) and Dog Day Afternoon. Lots of backroom dealings laying bare the motivations and motivators in 70s/80s terrorism.

Rotten Tomatoes

Mesrine Part 1: Killer Instinct - I haven't seen this one yet, but Vincent Cassel in a biopic of an infamous French gangster?! You make the call.
